To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of

Gentlemen— This is to advise you that I have 
received copy of a certificate of the State Housing

pointment heretofore made by me of Patrick F. 
Sullivan as Commissioner of the Housing Authority

Proposed Creation of a Chicago Plan Commission 
and a City Planning Advisory Board. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was, together with 
the ordinance and resolution transmitted therewith, 
referred to the Committee on Judiciary and State 
Legislation: 



January 18, 1939 

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, January 18, 1939. ( 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith a draft of an 
ordmance for the reorganization of the Chicago 
Plan Commission, also a draft of a resolution creat- 
mg the City Planning Advisory Board, a body 
designed to advise and assist the Chicago Plan 
Commission. These drafts were presented to me by 
a delegation of members of the Commercial Club 
of Chicago and other leading citizens whose inter- 
est in the Chicago Plan since its inception has been 
enthusiastic and material. 

Farseeing people are realizing more and more 
each year that city planning is one of the most im- 
portant problems which our cities must solve. This 
IS true because the guiding of the physical growth 
of a city, along practical as well as beautiful lines, 
is really fundamental. The Plan of Chicago, to di- 
rect the future growth of this city along proper 
lines, is the greatest plan of any American city. 

The proposed ordinance and resolution make the 
Plan Commission and the City Planning Advisory 
Board an official part of the city government. As 
they are intended to make more effective and use- 
ful the work of the commission in carrying out the 
clear, concrete and comprehensive plan of munici- 
pal development calculated to utilize the natural 
advantages of Chicago in the direction of making 
it a beautiful and attractive city, I bespeak your 
earnest consideration of them. 



Very truly yours, 



(Signed) 



Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 



In connection with the foregoing communication. 
Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, by unanimous 
consent, made the following statement to the Council: 

Representing more than two years of study, an 
ordinance clothing the thirty-year-old Chicago 
Plan Commission with official powers was pre- 
sented to me today by the Commercial Club. 

The Plan Commission, created in 1909, on recom- 
mendation of Mayor Fred Busse, has served in an 
advisory capacity in helping to carry out the pro- 
gram of city development envisioned in the "Chi- 
cago Plan." 

Under the ordinance proposed by the Commercial 
Club, the commission would be specifically em- 
powered to prepare and recommend to the City 
Council a comprehensive plan of public improve- 
ments looking to present and future development. 

After adoption by the Council, these recom- 
mendations would become the "official plan" of the 
City. The commission would give aid to the various 
City officials charged with direction of projects, 
and would cooperate with the local housing au- 
thority. 

The proposed ordinance calls for a commission 
of thirty members, and an advisory board of not 
more than 200 members, all to be appointed by the 
mayor, with the original terms staggered so that 
the membership shall never be political. 

Ex-officio members of the commission would be 
the president of the board of local improvements. 



January 18, 1939 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



7495 



the president pro tern, of the City Council, the com- 
missioner of subways and traction, and the chair- 
men of the City Council committees on finance, 
local transportation, railway terminals, local in- 
dustries, buildings and zoning, traffic and public 
safety, harbors, and housing; and the presiding 
officers of the Chicago Parli District, Chicago Hous- 
ing Authority, Chicago Board of Health, Chicago 
Recreation Commission, and the Board of Com- 
missioners of Cook County. 

It is stipulated that the chairman, the two co- 
chairmen, and the other members (except the ex- 
officio members) shall hold no other public office. 

The Commercial Club committee which prepared 
the ordinance and submitted it to me consisted of 
E. T. Stevens, chairman; Col. J. A. Holabird, D. H. 
Burnham, Kent Chandler, Philip R. Clarke, Fred 
A. Preston, Col. A. A. Sprague, Alfred T. Carton, 
Guy A. Richardson and Ralph Budd. 

I am glad to receive the Commercial Club's pro- 
posed ordinance, giving official authority to the 
activities of the Chicago Plan Commission. The 
proposal is the result of more than two years' study, 
during which the effort has been to produce a meas- 
ure which would not only embody the ideal of 
systematic planning for a greater city, but which 
would be practical in its application. I think it has 
been admirably adapted to both of these ends, and 
I am glad to recommend it to the City Council. 

Heretofore, although the commission has served 
Chicago admirably for thirty years, it has been 
hobbled by the lack of officially designated powers. 
Now, with our city expanding and developing on 
such a large scale, systematic planning has become 
more essential than ever. It is time that the hobbles 
were removed. 

A non-partisan body such as the Chicago Plan 
Commission, representing so complete a cross-sec- 
tion of varied interests, can be invaluable in sifting 
the many projects which come before the City 
government for consideration. 

The commission will be able to study each pro- 
posed project and determine whether it will fit into 
the scientific, pre-determined plan for a sym- 
metrical, "balanced" city. In other words, the 
evolution of the greater Chicago of which we all 
dream, and for which we are all working, will 
proceed in orderly fashion, instead of a hit-or-miss 
basis. The development will be in accordance with 
the best interests of all Chicago, and not merely in 
line with the wishes of any special group. 

I ask that you give the matter immediate and 
earnest consideration.

Recreational Facilities in the 45th Ward. 

Whereas, The question of playground facilities 
and places of recreation are sadly lacking in the 
45th Ward, and, 

Whereas, The children, because of this lack of 
recreational spaces, are compelled to play in the 
streets endangering not only their individual lives, 
but are a constant nuisance to their elders because 
of the noises that children will make while at play 
in order to expel from their bodies that excessive 
energy that a growing child has; and, 

Whereas, Many children have been injured and 
many lives lost in the past years because of playing 
in the street; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Committees on Recreation and 
Aviation, Schools, Fire and Civil Service and 
Health join and make an exhaustive survey of the 
possibilities of 

1st. The advisability of securing an addition 
of playground space by the purchasing of prop- 
erty adjoining schools in order to increase the 
school grounds for play and recreational pur- 
poses and

properties in certain locations, same to be pur- 
chased by the City of Chicago for playground 
purposes; further be it

mediate action so as to find a remedy and solution

approximately 3000 children in the 935 apartments, 
makes it necessary for additional increases in edu- 
cational facilities and space to accommodate this 
new group of children in addition to those who live 
in the district outside of the project; and 

Whereas, The Schneider School being built in 
1896, is over 43 years of age, dilapidated, anti- 
quated, unmodernized and unsuitable for the num- 
ber of pupils in the district; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Board of Education be and

the present site, with additional space for play- 
ground purposes through the purchase of adjoin-

Direction for Replacement of Curbs and Gutters 

Where New Sidewalks or Pavements Provide 

Insufficient Drainage. 

Whereas, The sidewalks that are now being laid 
as a W.P.A. Project are being laid in accordance 
with the new street level, throwing the curbs and 
gutters entirely out of line, and 

Whereas, The streets that are now being resur- 
faced likewise are being laid to the new street 
level, using practically all the curb and leaving no 
part of the curb in many instances to drain the 
water from the street, consequently flooding the 
parkways, therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public Works 
be and he is hereby directed to arrange for a curb 
and gutter building program to give to the streets 
which do not now have ample curbs and gutters, 
proper drainage by building new curbs and gut- 
ters which will beautify the appearance by setting 
off the streets and curbs and also the sidewalks.

nance to permit, in a 2d volume, apartment dis- 
trict, the erection of a one-story addition, 22x25 
ft., to the front of an existing two-apartment 
building, to be used as a retail food shop on 
premises at 5523 S. Indiana avenue; and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered October 24, 1938 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with require- 
ments of zoning ordinance.'; 

and 

Whereas, the proposed use is to be located in 
an apartment district and would violate the strict 
letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the board of appeals at its regular 
meeting held on November 14, 1938, after due 
public notice by publication in the Chicago Jour- 
nal of Commerce on October 29, 1938; and 

Whereas, the use district maps show that the 
premises are located in an apartment district; 
and 

Whereas, the board of appeals is authorized by 
law in cases where there are practical difficulties 
or particular hardship in the way of carrying 
out the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to 
hear and recommend variations of such ordinance 
to the City Council under rules provided in such 
ordinance; and 

Whereas, in the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the board of 
appeals to recommend variations to the City 
Council there appears the following rule in Sec- 
tion 28, par. (1): 

'Granting of permission to devote premises 
in a Residence or Apartment District to a non- 
conforming * * * c use, * * * in a block * * * 
in which there exists a non-conforming * * * 
C use * * * of a similar nature.'; 

and 

Whereas, the board of appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds that 
there are several similar non-conforming uses 
located in the block in which the premises are 
situated and that the applicant should be granted 
relief on the ground of particular hardship in the 
way of carrying out the strict letter of the zon- 
ing ordinance on condition that all permits neces- 
sary for the erection of the proposed addition 
shall be obtained within three months and all 
work involved shall be completed within six 
months after the passage of an ordinance by the 
City Council; that all other ordinances of the city 
of Chicago shall be complied with and that plans 
in triplicate shall be approved by the board of ap- 
peals before a building permit is issued herein; 
and 

Whereas, the board further finds that the prem- 
ises are located immediately adjacent to store

way of carrying out the strict letter of the zon- 
ing ordinance and that the variation may be made 
consistently in harmony with the intent and pur- 
pose of the zoning regulations and would not be 
detrimental to the public welfare, safety or

7717 



Office of the Mayor, 
Chicago, January 25, 1939! 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I am in receipt of a petition ad- 
dressed to the Mayor, the City Council, the Board 
of Education, and other local governmental agencies 
purporting to be signed by 25,000 citizens of Chi- 
cago requesting that all corporate authorities within 
the city of Chicago who have occasion to let con- 
tracts for manufactured wood products and other 
supplies should favor Chicago industries in the pur- 
chase thereof. 

It is urged that public money, derived from tax- 
ation of citizens of Chicago, should, if practicable, 
be spent in Chicago to sustain Chicago manufac- 
turers and workers who contribute to the mainte- 
nance of local government; that, in considering 
bids from manufacturers and others outside of the 
city, consideration should be given to the differen- 
tial in the wage scale and standard of living in the 
city of Chicago and elsewhere. 

I am in sympathy with the motives of the peti- 
tioners and believe that competition for public 
work, materials and supplies afforded by lower 
wages and lower standards of living than prevail in 
Chicago is unfair to home industries and labor and, 
ultimately, to the taxpayers of Chicago. Neverthe- 
less, I am advised that there may be some legal 
questions involved in any plan to restrict compe- 
tition in cases in which, under State law, we are 
required to award contracts to the lowest bidder. 
I, therefore, transmit herewith the petition referred 
to with the request that your Honorable Body give 
this subject careful study to the end that, if prac- 
ticable, an ordinance be adopted to make effective 
the proposal contained in the petition.

Very truly yours, 

Edward J. Kelly, 
Mayor.

condemnation proceedings.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 25, 1939 



No request was made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of sa-id report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed and 
said ordinance was passed by yeas and nays as 
follows: 

Yeas— Aldermen Dawson, Jackson, Hcaly, Mulcahy, 
Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hartnett, Egan, McDer- 
mott, Kovarik, Moran, Murphy, Duffy, Ropa, Kacena, 
Arvey, Bowler, Konkowski, Sain, Kells, Terrell, 
Upton, Keane, Rostenkowski, Kadow, Porten, Orli- 
koski, Robinson, Kiley, Cullerton, Brody, Ross, 
Cowhey, Crowe, Bauler, Grealis, Meyer, Young, 
Schulz, Massen, Keenan and Quinn — 43. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, On January 16, 1939, the Board of 
Appeals adopted the following resolution: 

"Whereas, the Industrial Sugars Corporation, 
for Standard Brands, Inc., owner, filed, Decem- 
ber 27, 1938, an application under the zoning or- 
dinance to permit, in a manufacturing district 
nearer than 500 feet to a commercial district and 
2000 feet to an apartment district, the establish- 
ment and operation of a sugar refinery plant, on 
premises at 1562-98 N. Kingsbury street; and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered December 27, 1938 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with require- 
ments of zoning ordinance'; 

' and 

Whereas, the proposed use is to be located in 
a manufacturing district nearer than 500 feet to 
a commercial district and 2000 feet to an apart- 
ment district and would violate the strict letter 
of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the board of appeals at its regular 
meeting held on January 16, 1939, after due pub- 
lic notice by publication in the Chicago Journal 
of Commerce on December 31, 1938; and 

Whereas, the board of appeals is authorized by 
law in cases where there are practical difficulties 
or particular hardship in the way of carrying out 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to hear 
and recommend variations of such ordinance to 
the City Council under rules provided in such 
ordinance; and 

Whereas, in the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the board 
of appeals to recommend variations to the City 
Council there appears the following rule in Sec- 
tion 28, par. (8): 

'Permission to maintain a * * * M3 use any- 
where in a Manufacturing District which 
otherwise would not be permitted by this or- 
dinance, where clearly the appropriate use of 
neighboring property is not injured thereby.'; 

and 

Whereas, the board of appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds 
that the proposed use is to be located in an exist- 
ing plant formerly used for the manufacture of 



yeast and vinegar that in this case there is prac- 
tical difliculty and unnecessary hardship in the 
way of carrying out the strict letter of the zoning 
ordinance and that the applicant should be 
granted relief on condition that all permits nec- 
essary for the establishment of the proposed use 
shall be obtained within three months after the 
passage of an ordinance by the City Council and 
that all other ordinances of the City of Chicago 
shall be complied with before a certificate of oc- 
cupancy is issued herein; and 

Whereas, the board further finds that the 
premises are located in a manufacturing district; 
that the proposed use will be so conducted that 
the appropriate use of neighboring property will 
not be injured thereby; that there is particular 
hardship in this case and that the variation may 
be made consistently in harmony with the intent 
and purpose of the zoning regulations and would 
not be detrimental to the public welfare, safety 
or health. 

Resolved, that the board of appeals by virtue 
of the authority conferred upon it does hereby 
recommend that the City Council enact the fol- 
lowing ordinance: 

'Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Section 1. That pursuant to Section 28, para- 
graph (8) of the Chicago Zoning Ordinance 
as amended, a variation be and the same is 
hereby allowed for the establishment and 
operation of a sugar refinery plant on premises 
at 1562-98 N. Kingsbury street; in confofmity 
with the findings and recommendations of the 
board of appeals of the City of Chicago on 
January 16, 1939. 

Section 2. The Commissioner of Buildings is 
hereby ordered and directed to grant permis- 
sion for the establishment and operation of a 
sugar refinery plant on premises at 1562-98 N. 
Kingsbury street on condition that all permits 
necessary for the establishment of the proposed 
plant shall be obtained within three months 
after the passage of this ordinance and that all 
other ordinances of the City of Chicago shall 
be complied with before a certificate of occu- 
pancy is issued herein. 

Section 3. This ordinance shall be in force 
and effect from and after its passage.' "; 

now, therefore, 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That pursuant to Section 28, para- 
graph (8) of the Chicago Zoning Ordinance as 
amended, a variation be and the same is hereby 
allowed for the establishment and operation of a 
sugar refinery plant on premises at 1562-98 N. 
Kingsbury street; in conformity with the findings 
and recommendations of the Board of Appeals of 
the City of Chicago on January 16, 1939. 

Section 2. The Commissioner of Buildings is 
hereby ordered and directed to grant permission for 
the establishment and operation of a sugar refinery 
plant on premises at 1562-98 N. Kingsbury street 
on condition that all permits necessary for the es- 
tablishment of the proposed plant shall be obtamed 
within three months after the passage of this ordi-

the Works Progress Administration by $150,000,- 
000.00; and 

Whereas, We believe that this reduction of $150,- 
000,000.00 will cause thousands of men to be de- 
prived of their means of livelihood, forcing them to 
seek relief from their local authorities; therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That the City Council of the City

United States to restore the amount of $150,000,- 
000.00, or such sum as is necessary to give employ-

Whereas, It is now proposed in the tentative 
budget of the State of Illinois, now in preparation, 
to reduce the State relief appropriation by approxi- 
mately $900,000.00 per month; and 

Whereas, A similar situation with reference to 
shortage of relief funds existed in the spring of 
1938, and the crisis resulting therefrom made it 
necessary for the City Council to pass a resolution 
calling upon the Governor of the State of Illinois 
to call a special session of the State legislature in 
order to give the matter immediate consideration 
and to appropriate for the additional funds needed, 
and the Governor, realizmg the necessity of such 
immediate legislation, did call the State legislature 
into special session; and 

Whereas, The amount of money made available 
through such special session of the legislature was 
still insufficient, and the relief load today has not 
decreased but is causing further demands for re- 
lief; therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That the Lieutenant Governor of 
the State of Illinois, acting as Governor, and the 
members of the State legislature be requested not 
to reduce the relief appropriation by $900,000.00 
per month as is now contemplated; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the City Clerk be 
and he is hereby directed to transmit a copy of this
